SEVERAL NATIONAL Center for Public Policy and Higher Education staff members were key participants in a higher education finance seminar held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in February. The seminar was co-sponsored by the Center and the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Center President Pat Callan moderated a panel discussion of affordability issues, while Vice President Joni Finney led a discussion of performance-based financing. Kristin D. Conklin, director of the Center's Washington, D.C. office, summarized her recent report on the new federal tax credits and their likely impact on state higher education financing policies. Research Associate William Doyle joined Center consultant John Immerwahr of Public Agenda in a discussion of public opinion about higher education.

The sessions were attended by more than 30 education reporters from newspapers across the country. The Hechinger Institute is affiliated with Teachers College at Columbia University.

Also in February, the Center held a two-day symposium on "Assessing State Policy Needs and Alternatives for Higher Education," at the San Francisco Marriott Hotel. The discussion centered on papers written by Richard C. Richardson, Jr., professor in the Division of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at Arizona State University, and Harold Hovey, president of State Policy Research, Inc.
